We all need community.
Life Groups are small gatherings of adults who regularly gather to live life together, and learn about God. Members of Life Groups experience spiritual growth and meaningful community. This is where we work through the challenges of daily life, and offer love and support to one another. Life Groups give us the opportunity to form intentional relationships with others in the body of Christ, and to grow spiritually through community. After all, we’re not meant to go through life alone!
There are a variety of Life Groups at Fair Oaks: some groups are ongoing throughout the year, typically meeting on a weekly schedule; other groups form for a specific season, typically meeting weekly for a 6- to 8-week period. Whether you are single, married with children, married without children, or an empty-nester, there is a Life Group for you. We encourage you to get connected!
FALL Life Groups start the week of SEPTEMBER 24TH.
If you're looking to get connected, desiring to join a new group, or feel led to start a group, our Fall Life Groups are your opportunity. These groups will meet for eight weeks, from the week of September 24th through the week of November 19th. Sign-ups for group leaders begin Sunday, August 13th, while sign-ups for other group members begin Sunday, September 3rd. To sign up for a group, visit the Information Desk after service, or call the church office at (925) 687-4810 by September 18th.

Frequently Asked Questions
If I am already in a Life Group, do I need to sign up for a Fall Life Group?
You are more than welcome to continue meeting with your established Life Group! If you desire to take a break from that group and join a new group for the Fall session, that is also welcomed.
How do I join a Fall Life Group?
To join a Fall Life Group, you can either sign up at the Information Desk following Sunday Service on September 3rd, September 10th, or September 17th, or you can call the church office at (925) 687-4810. You’ll be asked to provide your contact information and your daily availability to meet during the weeks of September 24th-November 19th.
Do I get to choose my own Fall Life Group?
We know that you may be close to, and more comfortable with, certain members of the church. We also know that Fall Life Groups are a natural and easy way to meet new people and form new relationships. With this in mind, we will assign you to a group based on your availability and preferences.
Where will my Fall Life Group meet?
Life Groups typically meet at the home of the group leader, although each group may decide for themselves what works best. During the Fall session, the church campus will be open Wednesday evenings for Fall Life Groups that wish to meet here.
How long is each Fall Life Group meeting?
Typically, groups meet for 1-2 hours, depending on the flow of conversation and availability of the group members.
Will childcare be available for my Fall Life Group?
Each group will need to coordinate their own childcare. The church nursery will be available Wednesday evenings to groups who provide their own sitter.
Who decides what we are going to study in my Fall Life Group?
Fall Life Groups will be able to use the study questions prepared each week to supplement the Sunday message. Groups may also decide to do a different study of their choosing for the eight-week period.
